I don't understand why Nokia doesn't put a full flash in their browsers. They have good cpus and gpus in these latest models and still they only put flash light. Flash light doesn't allow you to play flash videos outside youtube. It is realy shame. I would gladly buy Nokia 701 if it's browser only had a full flash. You can't even download skyfire for symbian:( So I gotta go for Android in the same pricerange.

I am hoping that I get this before May.. ahaha

Those other phones may have the same processor line, but maybe they have different models? And also probably the 808 maybe has a different model.

The 808 announced in MWC was only a prototype, so it is a huge possibility that the final product will not be the same as the prototype. It may be clocked at 1.3GHz right now, but who knows? Maybe it is a 1.5 or 1.6GHz processor, or even a dual-core one...

But I sincerely hope that this one gets WiFi direct, support for NTFS/exFAT, ability to map network drives and fully customizable camera settings (including exactly which directory to save the photos to). Also better codecs that support Hi10p... This may be pushing it a bit too much, but 60fps for 1080p and 720p recording would be cool. Though I won't mind 60fps for only 720p.

nokia 6700 is the best mobile phone ever made. i was in moscow and i saw very rich people using this device with no problem. even in the era of androids, cpu speeds, big screens, nokia 6700 remains the best choice. nokia 808 is from the same immortal league of hystorical mobiles, wich only nokia know how to make. samsung galaxy s and s2 are the only two non-nokia devices wich can be compared with the success of the impressive time line of nokia.

nokia remains even in these tough times the best and the most serious. their hardware is so so fine and their after sales support in terms of service and updates is miles away from korean kitsch. for example nokia n91, n81, n96 were super strong in headphones audio output, with superb audioboards, but they didn't say anything about this aspect. even nokia 2700,2730, cheap budget mobiles are miles away from any korean kitsch

I agree. But if he does got his before May 2012 that will be a different story. =)

Philippine politics went overseas... =)

Anyway, the first report i read, pureview will be shipped with belle fp1. And it will be better if it came out with fp2. We dont have to upgrade it.

By the way, Nokia N8, 701, E7, X7 have the same processor (ARM11). And pure view will come out with the same processor but clocked at 1.3ghz that lead me to ask:

Why nokia didn't enhanced the speed of N8 and other nokia devices with similar processors (to, say 1ghz)?

If they had done that 2 years ago with N8, maybe, just maybe, N8 is still selling hot today.

Cheers!

I hope there will be a Feature Pack (FP) or firmware update that will allow the camera to capture images in RAW format; then it would be a true compact digital camera and camcorder replacement. (I hope they have it in the work right now)

Nokia Pureview technology + Nokia rich recording+ Carl Zeiss Optics -- awesome. 41 mp sensor in a phone?? wow ! Only Nokia can do such incredible things. I am sure no other smartphone can beat this superior camera in the next three years.(except nokia phones). Once again the king prove that they are leader in terms of camera.

> In reply to Jude @ 2012-03-27 04:13 from IaH9 - click to readThat last line made me laugh. I hope we won't see another headline such as "President first Filipino owner of (insert phone here) in the Philippines." That was sooo entirely false. There were already Filipinos who bought the iPhone 4S in other countries and brought it to the Philippines days before the president got his. I am planning on doing it in the same manner.

New models don't reach us quickly. We might expect it around June at the soonest, according to Nokia Philippines. Europe and Middle East are usually among the first to have this phone in the market. I'll be getting mine from one of those.

But honestly, I have doubts about this phone's processor... According to Nokia last year (I think), they said they will be releasing a dual-core phone either by late 2011 or early 2012. This is the most powerful Nokia phone for early 2012, and most likely the only one of its kind to be released this year.

Symbian Carla and Donna are on their way, but they seem to be targeted for dual-core phones. Who knows, maybe the 808 really has a dual-core processor in it, just waiting for the OS to support it and the update to activate it. Remember the 700 and 701 having their processor power unlocked with Belle?

Just my guess, but I think the 808 will actually be released with Belle FP2, along with more features such as WiFi Direct, NTFS/exFAT for microSD cards

> In reply to deVmisra @ 2012-03-26 22:02 from rxhh - click to readWow. You really don't know what you are saying...

1. Symbian needs only one core because it is very well optimized for performance and battery use.

2. Refer to answer #1

3. Refer again to answer #1. Symbian is so powerful that it requires minimal specs to do things that other OS can with 2 cores.

4. Says who? 1080p playback... 1080p recording... But doesn't have a powerful GPU? Nobody (except Nokia) even knows about its GPU.

Why are android fanboys brag their stuffs in this forum? The answer is simple: ENVY. Envy is one of the 7 deadly sins of man.

Why do Nokia develop single core phones only? The answer is also simple: They are better than the other phone development teams and the single-core 1ghz (or more) processor phones they make can be at par with dual core android phones (in terms of functionality and response). I have N8 with speed 0f 680MHZ but the response is as fast as the other 1ghz processor android phones.

Knowing that their single core phones is already at par with dual core phones, how much more if they had actually use dual cores in their next models? The quad core phones will most probably be threatened.

Now, for those android fans out there bashing at this model, look into your phones first. Your phones are not perfect either. They have cons, too and much worse than nokia phones.

As an example, here are some cons of Samsung Nexus when updated to Ice Cream Sandwich
1. It can't send or receive MMS when updated to ICS
2. Google+instant uploader will not work anymore.
3. Unstable memory and some memory problems occur.
4. Battery drains much more faster than before after the update
5. An issue with contact names/numbers not showing up correctly, both in messaging and in call lists.

The list can go on. But in fairness to samsung nexus, the phone is great in itself and it is better not to update it to ICS to enjoy its features, as is.

But to Nokia phones, no problems or issues when you update it to higher version OS.

This means that the development team of Nokia is better than the others (no offense). So, your nokia handsets, whatever model, is of best quality. Just don't buy the fake nokia phones. Yes, nokia phones are copied and this is the best compliment for nokia.

Cheers to all nokia owners!

By the way, when this phone hit the Philippine market, I'll fall in line to grab 1. (",)

all android fans are bragging their dual-core/quad-core android phone, which they think its better in all aspect... Then bout battery issue, oh my, my android phone don't even give my needs to back up heavy internet usage using edge/3g/hsdpa... Its not all about fancy ui, its all about what gives you satisfaction... Haha android users need to buy a car battery and put it in their back packs when they are away from a charger...
